wow, this gets more and more frustrating as the years go by. I live out in the Fraser Valley. I commonly launch at McDonald, Steveston, Ladner, rare at Planitarium, Ambleside, or Sunset, Reid Pt is an absolute theft for what they charge and a long run to fishing grounds. The Fraser River has almost ZERO also. Why not more Ramps? Jeeze if I owned property on the Fraser I'd be applying to get one ASAP. The Kwantlen Band in Fort Langley could make a FORTUNE with their Ramp if they had the smarts to put in a proper dock or any dock for that matter, tons of parking etc....... but no....... With ramps that are tide sensitive to deep V hulls, not dredged, and traffic, options are terribly limited. Now with McDonald closed due to Tug down and diesel spill, Steveston with almost Zero parking, Ladner super tide sensitive and little parking, down town Vancouver Planitarium ramp is crazy to haul big boats through traffic....... It appears to me our Officials want less and less marine traffic out there period. We are HUGE contributors to the local economy in so many ways but access to our waters is getting less and less, plus more and more crowded. Nanaimo Gets It. Wow! What a terrific facility they have. Three lanes wide, wonderful dock and 6 bucks. Cudos to those officials that are helping the local economy in so many ways with this. What's your thoughts on this subject? Why?
